Put one angle of each triangle at the center of the hexagon.

Join them together

First make a regular hexagon. Then take any one triangle and slide it through two heights so that it's base is on what was the opposite side. You will have an irregular, concave hexagon, shaped somewhat like an arrowhead.

Only an equilateral triangle, square and a regular hexagon can be used to make regular tessellations but there are innumerable polygonal and non-polygonal shapes which will tessellate by themselves, and others which will tessellate along with other shapes.

You Cant. Because A Hexagon Is A Six Sided Shape. And An Equilateral Triangle Is Equal. So You Can Because Everything (As In Sides And Angles Will Be Congruent)

A regular hexagon can be considered as being built up of six equilateral triangles. Each equilateral triangle has an area of (b/2) * sqrt (3b/2) where b is the side of the equilateral triangles that make up the hexagon and also the radius of the hexagon's circumscribed circle, and sqrt means the square root ofSo the area of the regular hexagon with side length b is 3 * b * sqrt (3b/2)

Hexagonal prisms cannot be regular. If you tried to make one it would end up being a hexagon since six equilateral triangles make a hexagon. Therefore, there is no surface area.

You take four regular triangles and make the all on the same center point and make them share one or two of there side with the triangle next to it until you get something that looks like a pac-man with a big mouth.

an isosceles triangle has 2 equal sides while the equilateral triangle has 3 equal sides

Put four equilateral triangles so that each one of them has a vertex at a single point and the triangles abut one another. The shape will be 4/6 (= 2/3) of a regular hexagon.

Yes. Acute angle is less than 90°. 60° which is less than 90°, can make an equilateral triangle .

no

A triangle and parallelogram

For equal sides make an Equilateral triangle. Equilateral triangles have 3 internal angles of 60o. All 3 sides are equal length. Make one using those characteristics.

No. Equilateral triangles have 60o angles. There is no way to build a right-angle triangle with sides of equal length.

There are an infinite number of options. Even sticking with polygons with sides of the same measure, a hexagon can be made from 6 equilateral triangles, or 4 eq triangles and a 60 degree rhombus, or 2 eq triangles and 2 60-deg rhombi, or 3 60-deg rhombi. Each of the equilateral triangle could be made from smaller shapes. Eg four equilateral mini-triangles to make 1 triangle. Or 2 mini-triangles and 1 mini-rhombus or 2 60-deg mini-rhombi. And then each of those mini triangles could be made up of smaller micro-shapes. And so on ...

All you have to use is the five triangles. The two large triangles make a square in the middle, the two small triangles make a large triangle on one side and the middle triangle on the other side.
